Atsushi Tamura lends his artistic touch to character designs, while monster designs are the brainchild of manga creator Kan Takahama. Shūji Katayama creates the captivating music, with Yoshikazu Iwanami overseeing sound direction. Yuichi Ishima serves as the line director. Rock band WANIMA brings their energy to both the opening theme “Natsuake” and ending theme “FLY & DIVE.”
